Red carpet jewels from the amFAR Gala 2017

The biggest night of the Cannes Film Festival, A-listers and models shined brightly at amFAR’s Golden Age of Hollywood-themed Cinema Against AIDS Gala.

  • Vintage jewels have been few and far between on the Cannes red carpet, but this is one of my favourite jewels so far. Quintessential Bulgari, this bold necklace, typical of the 1980s, the era in which it was made, is set with amethysts, tourmalines, peridots and citrines – the perfect pick-me-up for Russian supermodel Natasha Poly’s nude gown.
  • Joan Smalls looked fashionably fabulous in oversized gold hoops by Chopard at the amfAR Gala 2017, held annually during the Cannes Film Festival. Add the body jewel into the equation, which is part necklace and part belt, and the Puerto Rican model gets my vote for coolest look of the night. 
  • French model Cindy Bruna has stepped out in many beautiful jewels during the Cannes Film Festival, but this de GRISOGONO high jewellery choker trumps them all. Set with hundreds of briolette emeralds, it sends a wave of pavé diamonds around the neck for a look that is so now.
  • Former Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin looked edgily elegant on the amfAR Gala red carpet in Cannes last night. With her hair pinned away from her face, all eyes were drawn to the Tatiana ear cuff from Messika’s high jewellery collection, which climbed all the way up her ear. 
  • Nicole Kidman hasn’t put a foot wrong in Cannes and she was once again queen of the red carpet at last night’s amfAR Gala. Dressed in frothy, feathered Chanel, this is my favourite frock of the festival, and she has got the jewels just right too: diamond studs, a Diamond Links bracelet and a diamond-set band by Harry Winston.
